In this work we study the flavor changing neutral current (FCNC) decays of the top quark, t -> c gamma and t -> cg, in the framework of the unparticle physics. The Standard Model predictions for the branching ratios of these decays are about similar to 5 x 10(-14), and similar to 1 x 10(-12), respectively. The parameter space of lambda, Lambda, and d is obtained by taking into account the SM predictions and the results of the simulation performed by the ATLAS Collaboration for the branching ratios of t -> c gamma and t -> cg decays.
